100 Books in 2012: Becoming Odyssa by Jennifer Pharr Davis

Book 12: Becoming Odyssa: Adventures on the Appalachian Trail by Jennifer Pharr Davis

Jennifer Pharr Davis is an amazing inspiration! I had the opportunity to hear her speak in the fall at the NCSLMA conference. Her motivational keynote address at the all-conference luncheon was incredible. She shared her trials and tribulations of traveling the Appalachian Trail, offering both humor, faith, and inspiration.

Her book, Becoming Odyssa, chronicles her adventures during her solo first attempt at traveling the 2,175 miles from Georgia to Maine as twenty-one year old. What an experience and what a fabulous read!

(Jennifer currently holds the record for hiking the AT in the shortest amount of time: 46 days!)
